I even dream about coins. Dreamed I had a choice of two beautiful Canada silver dollars. One was a 1949. The Newfoundland commem, with Cabot's ship, the Matthew. Unmistakably mint state. Shimmering mint luster, ship in all detail including the sails. No nicks, no spots.
And then there was a 1948. Voyageur type, the type minted for years. But this was the rare one. This was the big one for Canadian dollar collectors! Both were available for the same price, but I could only pick one. I wanted the 1948. My father told me to get the one with the ship. He liked ships. I couldn't explain...the 1948 was a big one...what to do? How to tell him?
I woke up.
You know you're a real collector when you dream about coins.
